I don't have enough room in my drawing to keep the dimension above the centerline. Is there a way for me to switch the placement to below the centerline?
If you insert a dimension using the Smart Dimension tool it will still be driven by the model, and will update if the model changes. Depending on your settings, it may initially be a different color, but that's easy enough to change.
I don't use Driveworks, so can't address that.
Did you try selecting the bottom chamfered edge, and then the vertical line just above it (the left vertical line of the part)
There is not presently a way to mirror the dimension, but it is so easily recreated, I don't know why you would need to.
I assume this is a Model Dimension. As the others have suggested, just delete (or hide) it and use the Smart Dimension function to add a dimension where you want.
The dimension shown comes from the model and I imported it to the drawing. Don't Smart Dimensions work differently? This dimension is going to be driven by a form input in Driveworks so I will need it to be derived from the model, unless you can suggest a different workflow?
The only difference between a smart dimension added at the drawing level is that the added dimension can not be used to drive model geometry. It is, essentially, a driven dimension. Like all driven dimensions, it will update as the driving dimensions are changed. Hope this helps.
